creative ways to learn gender

Anyone have experience to share regarding effective methods for keeping the gender of a noun locked in your brain? I'm generally a visual person: I can hear a word 10 times and not remember it, but once I see it written down, I'm good to go. So I tried getting colored sticky notes (red feminine, blue masculine etc.) and sticking them around my room, but it didn't seem to work. When thinking back on the word I couldn't see the color in my mind. Maybe notes of different shapes?

Granted, everyone is going to have something different that works for them, but I'm just looking for general thoughts/stories.
